Book Review of The Forever War (Forever War, Bk 1)

I don't feel that this book deserves the glowing praise it has had in past reviews. It was a good read, but not a great one. Of course I am biased against hippie soldiers, drug use and drunks so my opinion may have been tainted as a result of the authors emphasis on those topics. Another thought is that the story was written in the early 70's before the military space genre was popularized. There have been many better books written since then, but perhaps Haldeman deserves credit for being one of the first. I'm glad I read it, wouldn't read it again.
